My mini protest banner

I’m reading a fantastically inspiring book–CRAFTIVISM: The art of Craft and Activism edited by Betsy Greer. Its basis is a kind of William Morris derived idea that handmade craft is in and of itself subversive in a consumerist global economy, but takes it further by looking at the socially conscious installations and guerrilla art, like knit bombing. Also, collectives that use craft to empower women in emerging economies. Maybe all these things aren’t exactly the same–but the concept is fascinating. And inspirational.
